Thanks! I saw those reviews, but they are all US based and I was wondering why I could find nothing UK based at all...
I'd not even been considering a pouch style sling, as my primary experience with baby-wearing is in Zambia where women just get a length of cotton cloth and wrap and tie. I think I was bewitched by the supposed reduction from £46 down to £17 and thought it was worth a go...
Doesn't seem like these slings have been a winner over here at all - wonder why?
Ok - now I feel a fool! Tangle is right - but it is not only MADE by Peanut Shell, I think it is basically a Peanut Shell sling. Amy Coe must be some kind of celeb who just chose the fabric - looks exactly like every other Peanut Shell pouch sling!
So - to change my question - does anyone else have any advice on using a Peanut Shell sling?
It needs to be quite high up, the guide there says well above your navel, otherwise the baby won't be secure. Do try it, I had both a pouch sling and a wraparound and used them for different things - wraparound for long days out, pouch for nipping out to corner shop etc. We used to go to parties when ds was tiny and he would snooze away in the pouch too
